I was really tired yesterday and left out three important acknowledgements. This is too important to just edit in with the original post.
The first is my cousin J. She is my only family member that reads my blogs (bloodline and I think she is the only one). She encouraged me, leading up to and throughout the day. Which I deeply appreciated. J is also the one supporting me on my Atkins diet which she recommended to me. A deep felt thank you J.
The second is A. He is my brother by choice (this does not take anything from my blood brother), which is why I often add the word bloodline or of my heart. He kind of adopted me at a bad time and is damn hard to shake off (to date no luck at all – thank goodness). He knows some of my dark secrets and just stomped straight through them to the light dragging me with him. He supported me before and all day with texts. He was relentless in his belief I could go through with it. Thanks so much for being you.
The third is emotional and spiritual for me. I so wanted Scott to be there (I really wish he was not dead mainly), that I may have imagined this but it uplifted me. On the procession walk I felt like someone was walking with me, holding my hand. I looked down and my hand was in that position. I know family that it might have been but I chose to believe it was Scott. I do miss you so.
